also related, on a “date” in less than two hours, but not really sure if it’s happening because the person hasn’t really been communicative about times! anyway it’s not that bad, if i’m stood up i guess i can get ribs or something

also i’m kind of reflecting on the last three months of unemployment and how i have failed to make any friendships or personal connections in an industry that is completely built on friendships and personal connections~~~

i worry i’m neither as smart as i think i am, good as i think i am, or interesting as i think i am and there’s a nagging feeling that’s why everything attempt i have to achieve in life will fail 🍕

"i kinda like your company kind of but honestly the only reason i’m doing this is because i can’t live off savings forever so i’m voluntarily shackling myself to a job i will probably hate for at most two years until i get enough money to quit and do my own thing again"

there have to be more jobs at hogwarts than just the ones we know about.  i’m just gonna invent one for remus to have before he becomes dada professor for this au i’m working on.  like research assistant to mcgonagall or smthg.  adjunct muggle studies prof.  dumbledore’s secretary.

Have him be the guy who negotiates buying carpet for Hogwarts or new chairs for the great hall. Bulk pumpkin juice and repainting the ceiling. Basically the job that he hates in every way but Dumbledore says he doesn’t want to fire Filch because his is the only blood that can unlock the Jewel Doors of Eternity

i know you’re joking but THIS IS A GOOD POINT.  filch is “caretaker” but does that involve all the stocking and purchasing supplies for the castle?  or do house elves take care of getting ingredients for meals, etc.?  (also, how does the division of labor between filch and the house elves work?  they both having cleaning duties…)  presumably hogwarts does have to purchase supplies, but on the other hand, they also have extensive grounds which hagrid cultivates so they maybe provide some food for themselves.  hmmm.  what is the economic scheme of hogwarts. i have questions.

I’m only like 50% joking! Like what does Filch do? He disciplines students only occasionally (like I think house heads determine what people do for detention, and occasionally I guess they’re like “oh, you’ve been awful, go to Filch, he actively hates students) and I guess he cleans up things that are broken (versus tidying up which is what the house elves do, I guess), but he actively antagonizes troublemakers and probably makes things much worse in the end.

I definitely don’t really remember the books in detail but I guess he enforces curfew (less out of any desire to uphold the rules and more out of spite, as well as the fact that due to said spite he probably makes sure he calls in a rival house head when he catches a student so they lose points due to the Joking-Not-Joking-Actually-Deadly-Serious system of the house tournament)

anyway this is to say the position is almost certainly a position that Dumbledore invented as a favor to a friend, and one that Filch actively resents since he (rightfully) sees it as a position of pity

so Sirius could be also afforded a position of friendship, plunging him into an intense rivalry between a dude who upholds the rules out of a chance to punish students and a dude who could not care less about rules but feels like he should because it’s probably part of his job maybe?

but Hogwarts is loaded with rare and magical stuff. there’s materials to make Felix Felicitus, Veritaserum, and Polyjuice Potion which is like, pretty serious stuff! also crazy deadly plants and whatever (how there is not a stack of corpses of 11 year olds shoulder high outside the greenhouse i do not know, they are dumbasses and do things on dumbass dares)

aside from mundane things (like mentioned, pumpkin juice for the feasts, hiring magical painters so the paintings can feast as well) it’s not totally out of the question to imagine him just on trips to top off supplies of stuff that probably end up much more dangerous than anyone really realizes, since it’s a job that puts him on a schedule that closely mirrors Harry’s and that’s pretty sweet as far as a doting dad goes.

Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie just won a Hugo, which I’m thrilled about! It’s an excellent book that fans of sci-fi should definitely read. Here’s the two sentence plug before I blabber about it at length :

Ancillary Justice is about an AI on a quest for revenge with a haughty time-lost noble in tow. Even against the backdrop of a conspiracy to Kill The Ruler Of The Galaxy, Leckie manages to focus the narrative on interesting and driven characters set in a fully realized, breathing, changing, world.

It’s times like I wish I could write better because I honestly think Ancillary Justice was my favorite book this year (even though it came out October 2013). and I want to convince y’all to read it. More fleshed out thoughts under the read more!
